DeafTEC Resource Center Funded!

We are delighted to announce that RIT/NTID has been awarded a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program to support the DeafTEC Resource Center!

The DeafTEC Resource Center builds on and utilizes the exemplary materials and network that have been developed as part of the DeafTEC National Center. The DeafTEC Resource Center will: (1) leverage partnerships to broaden professional development opportunities on-site and online for high school teachers, community college faculty, and employers to improve access to learning and technician employment for deaf/hh students; (2) expand, enhance, and broadly disseminate DeafTEC’s innovative online resources and curricula available through its websites that serve as a clearinghouse for information related to technical education and technician careers for deaf/hh students and a national resource for teaching student veterans with hearing loss; and (3) collaborate with and provide mentoring for prospective PIs and current ATE projects and centers on creating inclusive environments for deaf/hh students and military veteran students with hearing loss.
